Wearable Tech to Keep You Safe

When people think of dangerous professions, it’s usually police officers, firefighters, EMTs and other first responders that come to mind. But hotel housekeepers are especially prone to unsafe conditions, their jobs requiring them to enter private rooms with total strangers.

According to a 2016 survey, fifty-eight percent of housekeepers have experienced sexual harassment on the job.*

That’s why Yasmine Mustafa founded ROAR for Good and developed their product, AlwaysOn, a discrete, wearable tracking device that enables hotel staff to alert security. In this episode of UpTech Report, Yasmine walks us through the inspiration behind this device, how they’ve worked to deploy it in the private sector, and where it could be applied in the future.
